Join the European Union, the City of Austin, and the World Affairs Council of Austin for a gathering of those working in and with cities interested in exploring the growing opportunities available for international city-to-city cooperation. The meetup will showcase Austin’s partnerships with Bologna, Italy and Lulea, Sweden around sustainable development, economic development, and cultural relations. We’ll also introduce EU and Central Texas trade reps working to expand their respective international trade relationships.
In addition to a sandwich lunch and networking, the meetup will include:
- Brief remarks by Austin and Bologna representatives participating in the EU’s International Urban Cooperation initiative
- Brief remarks by Austin and Lulea representatives participating in their economic and cultural partnership
- Cultural presentation from Austin’s House of Songs
- Concluding remarks by representatives from the European Union
We very much hope that you’ll be able to join us!
